Save the Children Begs Us to Think & Love Globally with 90 Second Video
We are constantly forcing people (and the potentially fatal situations they are trying to escape) back to their homes, because they were not born on our side of the line. At the end of the day, it is just a line that a man drew in the dirt many years ago. Because of that boundary, we have allowed that line to separate us in more ways than one.
This “separation” allows us to be informed but suddenly forget these occurrences, because it is not on homeland. This particular mindset is very similar to that of most cancer awareness supporters who run the 5K, donate to cause and retweet a statistic; they are typically the ones (or know someone) personally affected by the disease.
This is the age of social media!
It is up to our generation to create a different mentality. We must think and love globally. We can no longer be oblivious to the issues just because they are not on our doorstep. The decisions we make, social issues we fight against and the causes we support, must be done on a global scale. Start to ask yourself, “How does this hurt or help the world and what can I do to be apart of it?”
It goes beyond you and me, beyond the city, state and country we are in. It is humankind. If is happening to an 90 year man in Bulgaria, a 10 year girl in Wichita, Kansas should be wondering what she can do to help.
Be a light. mx
